Dog missing after burglary rescued, reunited with owner
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — On Saturday, Greg Razer hit the streets in hopes of finding his four-legged pal, Rufus. The nine-year-old Basset Hound disappeared after burglars broke into Razer’s home on Friday and left a door and gate open.
On Sunday, it’s a much happier story.
“Last night, a little after the broadcast, I got a phone call from a gentleman that said, ‘I think I know who has your dog,’” Razer said.
That initial phone call came just after a viewer saw the story on FOX 4 and led Razer to Chris Page.
Page is a tow truck driver that was called to an accident along 80th and Troost on the same day that Rufus got out. Immediately, he said, he knew Rufus was special.
“He wasn’t scared of people at all. I said ‘get in the truck,’ and took him with me.”
And off Rufus went.
“He is the fifth dog that we have brought home in the last few months. We have found the owners of most of them because of microchips,” Page said.
And soon Rufus, too, will have a microchip. But until then, he is a happy dog, happy to be home and happy to know he has some new friends.
“The whole thing feels great. Chris and Jenna that took care of him,” said Razer.
